2016 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Copa America tournament, and to celebrate, Packer Shoes has teamed up with legendary soccer brand, Umbro, for a special capsule inspired by this year’s host country, the USA. This is the first time that the tournament has ever been held on American soil.
The Packer x Umbro Linesman Trainer is a street-ready silhouette overflowing with classic soccer boot DNA pulled directly from the iconic Speciali model. The shoe marks the beginning of a new era for Umbro that will see a variety of like-minded styles introduced to the market in the near future. Limited to only 30 pairs worldwide, each COPA 100 shoe has been handmade in Portugal using ultra premium full grain leather and buttery suede combined with a made in Italy XL EXTRALIGHT outsole unit to create one of the most luxurious soccer-inspired lifestyle footwear offerings ever to hit the market. In addition to the red and blue accents, the shoe also gives some patriotic nods courtesy of debossed stars on the tongue flaps and 13 perforated stripes along the lateral sides. For those who choose to tuck the tongue flap, there is additional debossed co-branding on the underside with circular stars and stripes crest featured on the footbeds, as well as on the dust bag and special packaging. The Packer x Umbro Linesman Trainer will be available at Packer Shoes on June 11.
